Not every NFL head coach has the luxury of having a living legend to lean on for advice, and none other than Miami’s Joe Philbin can reach out to the man with the most career wins – Don Shula.
During one of his answers during today’s press conference regarding missed assignments and miscommunication, Philbin quoted Shula in order to make a point.
“I think Coach Shula once said, ‘Uncorrected errors will multiply.’ So if you don’t correct things, then they just fester again and they pop up and they rear their ugly head at the most inopportune times,” he said.
Philbin revealed that he reached out to Shula a couple of times during the spring and most recently after Miami’s 37-3 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Without getting into specifics of their conversation, he shared a little summary of where Shula’s thought process is these days.
